Well, currently I have kde installed and I am using it as my defaut wm.

I'm looking for a WM thats easy to customize and gives pretty good eye candy. I've looked around and it seems that XFCE and E17 are the more popular choices around.
Any suggestions??

Thanks

E17 is all what you need : easy to customize, good eye candy, very light, and many more !!

Honestly, stick with KDE and choose some nice themes, icons etc. Browse the http://www.kde-look.org/ web site.

E17 is wonderful, and beryl can do some fancy things if you have a compatible video card, but both are not exactly stable, and will be hard to set up and keep working.

Have a look at the Off the Wall forum and search for the Gentoo Monthly Screenshot posts. There you'll find a lot of different WM with their config and you can make up your mind.

Using the live CVS may cause some build fails at occasions, but the environment in a whole is pretty stable, and when it breaks, its fixed pretty fast :)

If you for whatever reason think E17 is unstable, try E16 which is in portage as stable.

I can't speak about other WM's since I stopped looking when I found E ;)
